Late August in New York is a great time to savor the joys of summer in a fabulous city; locals and guests can grab the last of the hot summer days and nights and fill them with some spectacular entertainment. There are events for nearly every taste and, since many are free, for every budget too. Some are educational such as the Drive East, an Indian dance and music festival at La MaMa Experimental Theater Club on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and some, like the Coney Island Reggae Beach Party on the Coney Island Boardwalk, are just plain fun.
